Saint Paul Public School's Out for Equity program strives to maintain a safe and welcoming school environment that fosters positive self esteem, respect for others, and academic success for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students through direct programming, professional development for staff, and supports for families.
The Gender and Sexual Diversity Parent Advisroy Council (GSDPAC) is a place for parents to advocate for their families, connect with each other, and make a difference for all students in Saint Paul Public Schools!
The first GSDPAC meeting date of 2015-2016 will be Thursday, October 8th, 2015. All meetings will be from 5:30 PM to 8 PM at 360 Colborne St. A meal and childcare are provided by the Office of Family Engagement and Community Partnerships.
What We Do
We build a strong community and improve the learning and social environment for LGBTQ+ students. We make recommendations to the Superintendent and Board to improve the success of our students, families, schools and the SPPS district. We increase the accessibility of opportunities for parent, guardian and caregiver engagement, advocacy and leadership.
Q-Quest is a two day event for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Allied youth to enjoy workshops, food, dancing, conversation, and art with a couple hundred other LGBTQ+ youth from across the metro & greater metro area! Contact your school's GSA Adviser for field trip permission slips and the bus schedule.
The Name/Gender Change Request Form is available to make changes to the student information system that reflect the name and/or gender a student consistently identifies. This form also provides a record of changes to a student's gender pronoun, access to gender-specific facilities, and participation in gender-specific co/extra-curricular activities.
Our "An Evening Out" (AEO) event is a recreational program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) and allied youth ages 14-20 that meets on Friday nights, 7 PM -11 PM.
Youth have the opportunity to hang out, socialize with friends, learn to cook, lead programs, create art, and get support in a safe space facilitated by Saint Paul Public School's Out For Equity and City of Saint Paul Parks and Recreation staff.
An Evening OUT will be happening every Friday night this summer except for July 3rd & August 28th.
